If you’ve ever watched ABC’s Shark Tank, then you are aware of who angel investors are – affluent individuals providing capital for business start-ups, usually in exchange for convertible debt or ownership equity.

If you can’t qualify for traditional financing, microloans could be the answer for you. These are low-value loans, usually $100 or less.
